put up. again, we know that these budgets respect going to become law. so, why the exercise? what's the point? >> definitely this broke all records for a vote a rama, what we call these extensive 13-hour-long debates, more than 100 amendments that were considered. but it's -- working the will of the senate, frankly. and it also, one of the things that's key we focus on is some of the amendments that did or didn't pass because they are going to be used in some of these elections in 2014 in terms of the keystone pipeline, for example. that amendment did pass. >> bill, anna brings up a significant point, a lot of folks who have been talking about this idea that the lion's share of what we saw unfold last night over on c-span, a lot of that was designed for campaign ads a lot was just for campaign commercials what does that say about the budget process? >> it is actually moving forward because the democrats have finally said they do support raising tax, only on the wealthy americans but esensely, what's changed, they didn't pass a budget for four years, any budget threat they passed w
ground in the years to come that real money can be put behind a gun law reform message, and it can be a winning message. the fact of the matter is, i watchedway lapierre call mayor bloomberg nutty this morning. well, wayne lapierre is about as nutty as a bag of trail mix when it comes down to issues like this. the end of the day, you're having this kind of gun violence, it happened on a day after day basis, americans want real change. they want universal background checks. you know, they do want, you know, limits on high capacity magazines. they do want a ban on assault weapons that can fire multiple, multiple rounds without reload. they do want those things. you won't see it in this legislation, but what mayor bloomberg and other mayors around the nation are doing will be a kick in the right direction. >> a lot of opposition from republicans and a number of democrats as well against the assault weapons ban specifically mayor bloomberg on "meet the press" earlier. pretty much saying that it probably won't pass. take ap listen. >> we are going to have a vote for sure on assault weap
is that officials here in colorado haven't officially identified the suspect but our local affiliate says their law enforcement sources have told them it is evan spencer ebble. he is a known white supremacist. he was involved in this high speed chase and shoot out. about ten hours drive from here in colorado yesterday in texas. now we do have some home video shot by a viewer at the end of that chase. so let's take a quick listen to that. so, again, this is the end of a high speed chase down in texas. what we know from authorities there is that it was a routine traffic stop. and that's when they say the suspect shot a deputy three times. he led them on a chase, shooting out the window. he crashed into a big rig. he then got out of the car, continued shooting until he was finally shot. he was airlifted to the hospital and was considered brain dead at that time. but what they have been able to do is to suspect that there's some link between the car he was driving there and a car that was spotted here in colorado when the head of the prison department here was shot dead outside his home on tuesday. and
laws, including stronger background checks. >> congressman james langevin. bring in our panel, chief investigative reporter, democratic strategist, keith boik in, and susan dell % oh. on "meet the press," wayne lapierre took a swipe at the sugary drinks campaign. let's listen to that first. >> he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restaurants, don't want him in their homes, telling them what food to eat, they sure don't want him telling them what self defense firearms to own. >> if you include that debate with the gun control discussion we just had with the congressman, there's only so much space one has to make one's argument. is bloomberg giving up some of that political capital by going after guns and sugary drinks all together, you lose some of that gravitas he needs. >> i don't believe with him on the sugary drinks campaign, but he is exactly right on the issue of gun violence. this isn't about mike bloomberg, it is about the parents of children murdered in newtown, the people that died from gun vi
investigating whether anyone else broke the law by not reporting the rape of a 16-year-old girl. on sunday, two high school football players were convicted of rape during that party. amplified by tweets, posting videos as well by social media. immediately before that judge issued that verdict, both defendants offered apologies. >> i'd like to apologize to [ bleep ] to my family and community. no pictures should have been sent out let alone taken. >> i'm sorry to put you guys through this. >> very emotional apologies. the judge still finding them guilty based on eyewitness testimony. hundreds of text messages about the attack and photos. one day later, explain how the family, the town, is moving on, because this is certainly been something that's trapped that town by this controversy because it was two star high school football players and that's such a big deal to steubenville. >> reporter: indeed, thomas. but they're not moving on so much because the attorney general is going to try to convene a grand jury beginning next month to look further into what happened. they're determined, as he said,
that if this becomes law, it will keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have them. it will reduce violent crime. it will save lives. we know that's true because in states that already require background checks on private sales, the rate of women murdered by an intimate partner armed with a gun is 38% lower than in states that don't have such background checks. the rate of firearm assaults including attempted murders is 17% lower. so there's no doubt that requiring background checks for all gun sales saves lives and there's no doubt that the american people support it. the only question is whether congress will have the courage to do the right thing or whether they will allow more innocent people, including innocent children, to be gunned down. it has been 97 days since newtown. in that time, we estimate that more than 3,000 americans have been murdered with guns. almost none of the victims generated national headlines. but each murder was a tragedy for the victim's family and for the community. if congress does nothing, another 12,000 people will be murdered with guns this year alone. we
a new set of gun control laws. just moments ago, the governor gave quite an emotional statement about clement, the man he described as the quintessential public servant and good friend. >> he did his job quietly and intently. he cared deeply about his staff and his family and the community. tom dedicated his life to being a public servant, to making our state better, to making a world a better place. and he is going to be deeply, deeply missed. >> joining me by phone is lieutenant jeff kramer of the sheriff's department. thank you for joining me, a very, very tough time. tell me about the man you're looking for there. do you have a suspect? >> well, unfortunately, we don't have a suspect as of yet. however, we do have a vehicle of interest that we would like help from our local community in further identifying. it was a vehicle that was observed last night about 15 minutes prior to us receiving the first 911 call, a vehicle parked on the side of the road, unoccupied, but it was running. a couple minutes later, it was gone, observed a near time later on a nearby roadway traveling west
